Salvador’s main gay beach is as relaxed as the city itself. For a start it’s mixed with no demarcation lines between single gay men out on the pull, families of four or groups of girls out for an afternoon on the sun.
The pier on the left from where guys dive in the water is certainly more male as such, as well as the small open-air gym on the southern part, but it’s generally a good, fun, mixed beach that is very accessible and so gets very busy at weekends.
The beach is close to the centre of the city and on bus lines 1 &2 that go to and from the Pelourinho (Old Town). It is within walking distance of the Salvador landmark of Farol da Barra.Last updated: 03-07-2014
